Scope Trigger Generators are Synchronizers
Oscilloscope trigger generators are high-performance synchronizers. For lower-speed 'scopes, a delay is placed in the clock path between the first and second of the D flops in the diagram. This gives the first flop output time to settle to a valid logic state within the setup time needed by the second flop so that when the delayed clock comes along, the second flop avoids metastability. The delay time is chosen from the exponential equation to reduce the probability of excessive delay (the metastable state) in achieving a valid output state to an acceptably low value.

Faster scopes use hysteretic RS flops, but that is a longer story ...

A three-part series of articles explains how to minimize interference through proper PCB design and layout.
In such things as laboratory power supplies or electronic systems, in which various components are connected to longer cables, the regulated voltage is not always particularly accurate at the point where it is needed due to various voltage drops across the interconnection lines.
There area plethora of USB Type-C articles out there, but this is the first one I have seen with a really neat design architecture to shrink the board footprint with a high level of integration.
The required selectivity of a customer design implied four-pole filters with about 10% bandwidth (passband width about 10% of the centre frequency). There was a catch---a tight power budget
